    It really upset me when I cannot find an item I need. When I load a quilt on my longarm, I use a magnetic wrist pincushion. I CANNOT FIND IT ANYWHERE :-(
    I also cannot find the TV remote. Maybe they are together!

    Remote controls are always evil - we have 2 in our bedroom for our cable/tv box - can't tell you how many times one is lost in the bed - under a greyhound laying on the bed, etc

    It soo frustrating when that happens. My 6inch by 1 inch ruler has been known to take "long walks" by itself. ... so I now have a few ... but who knew they liked walking together!

    Well, Dunster, whatever was it doing in your purse? That would be the last place I would look. As for the remote, look in the sofa cushions.

    I blame my husband.

    The worst was losing my wedding rings. We were cleaning out an apartment, preparing to move, and I had just had a baby. My hands had swollen from pregnancy, so I was wearing my rings on my little finger. They slipped off somehow. I looked all over the apartment, almost gave up, but finally found them in the trash, in the big trash cans in the community carport, which was separate from the apartments. I still remember that panicked feeling, and it was over 40 years ago.

    Stop looking for them. They will appear when you are not looking for them. I think if they know you are looking, they tend to hide deeper into the most unusual spaces of your home. lol.

    When you do find it have a mini quilt pocket made and ready to put it in with a string attached, and maybe a cowbell to go with it. That's what I intend to do when I find mine that disappeared almost a year ago! Maybe they eloped together somewhere. :)

    This happened to us. I asked my husband of 1 year to wash my car. He did and lost his wedding ring. We looked all over for a week. Did not find it. So we bought another one and within that week we found his old one as I was pulling weeds. Now he has a spare.

    I was putting my rulers on my new ruler holder I got last wedekend. the holder looks like a belt holder and has a hook to hang over a rod. Well, I had to fight the opening to get the rulers on BUT the dumb hook fell off somewhere and now I can't find it. Grrrrrrr!!

    If it were me, I would probably find it on my arm where it's supposed to be! Have you ever looked for your glasses and found they were already on your face? That's me!!!! ;-)
